Dear Applicant:
Thank you for your application. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you a position in our local government office for the summer. As you know, funding for summer jobs is limited, and it is impossible for us to offer jobs to all those who want them. Consequently, we are forced to reject many highly qualified applicants.

Which of the following can be inferred from the letter?

(A) The number of applicants for summer jobs in the government office exceeded the number of summer jobs available.
(B) The applicant who received the letter was considered highly qualified.
(C) Very little funding was available for summer jobs in the government office.
(D) The application of the person who received the letter was considered carefully before being rejected.
(E) Most of those who applied for summer jobs were considered qualified for the available positions.

CORRECT
(B) The applicant who received the letter was considered highly qualified.

Not stated if he was one of the "many"
(C) Very little funding was available for summer jobs in the government office.

A little strong--just says funding was limited.
(D) The application of the person who received the letter was considered carefully before being rejected.

Not stated at all

(E) Most of those who applied for summer jobs were considered qualified for the available positions.

"Many" doesn't mean most

Here, the author mentions that highly qualified applicants were rejected. In that case, every applicants must have been considered carefully.

I would like to go with choice d.

A) The number of applicants for summer jobs in the government office
exceeded the number of summer jobs available.

Correct...can be inferred completely without using any assumptions.

(B) The applicant who received the letter was considered highly qualified.

Can't be sure that he was among the rejected "highly" qualified applicants

(C) Very little funding was available for summer jobs in the government office.

Funding was limited not little

(D) The application of the person who received the letter was considered carefully before being rejected.

They might have decided that he wasn't highly qualified ( low GPA/GMAT :) ) and may not have considered her/his appln seriously

(E) Most of those who applied for summer jobs were considered qualified for the available positions

Many were highly qualified....most were ?..may be , may not be

This is an A


c,d and e are out of scope.

B seems to be a good candidate but the highly qualified part is not
directed to the applicant.

OA is A!
I was torn between A and C! But then, I agree, limited is not the same as very little.
